    I know this is hokey, but i just got done reading this book and it really did something for me... This is the first time ever in my life that I've read 171 pages in a matter of a day, coming back multiple times, to finish a book. Generally, i dont finish the books i start, and generally, once it's put down it stays down. This one made it through though. It has a strong motivational message and focuses on how to "wipe the slate clean" and start over. It focuses on creating goals, accepting responsibility, and learning how to pave the path you want to take.

    I just thought i would post it in case someone else needed it.

    **** I AM NOT THE AUTHOR ***** I would give credit where credit is due, but frankly i dont remember where i got the book. If anyone knows, let me know.

    thanks

    Not a problem. Has anyone read this yet? I'm curious if it was just me, or if this has helped others.

    It definitely helped me a lot, I learned a few key things I needed. I sat and read through it in one sitting last night. I did a search on the book and auther and I can't find it listed anywhere, not even a trace. Strange how such a powerful book doesn't even seem to exist.

    I loved the story formating, it helped to keep my interest until the end.

    I just find it funny how yesterday I spent hours and hours at 3 different book stores looking for something like this and then I said fuck it, gave up and went home. Only to randomly log onto offtopic when I hadn't in maybe 6 months and this is one of the first things I Come across. exactly what I wanted in a PDF download.

    go figure, the timing of this is almost eerie.

    thanks a million

    haha, I've been getting that everywhere. I had no idea so many people here knew me... I guess you don't know somethings until their gone. If that makes any sense.

    I've been busy with my new job and OT kills my productivity.

    I read most of this on my lunch hour and finished the rest at home. I found my problem is that I spend too much time making "to do" lists or planning things...instead of "charting out my course" and setting sail :hs: It's not that I don't get things done, but I spend too much time piddling along the way. I needed something like this to help me stay on track. I'm a pretty organized person as it is, but this was just the pick me up I needed :bigthumb:

    As for NN's comment that this doesnt seem to exist anywhere, you aren't joking...a Google search yielded no results...5 keys to everything but this particular piece :rofl:

    redna, thanks a million +1 for posting that. I'm gonna try this method out and see how much better I can do. :love:

    I printed up some of the charts/checklists in it and put it in a notebook. I look through it every night to remind myself and check off things I get done. I've been using this method since this was posted and so far have gotten a few goals accomplished
